General English - ELICOS

The English Language Intensive Course for Overseas Students (ELICOS) is a qualification intended specifically for international students who want to improve their English language skills. The English language is extremely vital in all industries around the world, not just for everyday conversation but also for business, career guidance, and social networking. EduNex offers high-quality, well-structured courses to help international students improve their English language skills. All EduNex courses are approved by the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS), which ensures that the courses and institutions where you study meet Australian educational standards.

The ELICOS programmed offered by EduNex is an excellent approach to study English, whilst gaining confidence and improving reading skills. All visa holders with study rights in Australia are welcome to enrol in our English program (i.e., temporary visa holders and permanent visa holders).

Our ELICOS courses prepare students for further studies at EduNex, in fields such as Business. Students with a basic understanding of the English language are encouraged to enrol in the course in order to advance their English skills and expand job opportunities.
